After a very long wait and many difficulties, I finally completed thepapercraftcouple's Articuno model.
It will need to dry its tack welds overnight, but should hold together.
I ended up taking over a month to do it and suffered losing a toe and putting the legs on the wrong sides, BUT! it stands before you and I now, a trophy of my patience and ingenuity.
I now own 2 of my favorite pokemon of all time.
The other is Lugia.
Of all the models I've completed, this was the hardest, and I would not recommend my version of it. It will be redesigned in the future.
